Faithful Generations Adult Sunday School Class
– All interested adults are
invited to join the Faithful Generations class each Sunday in the Wydown Meeting Room. This is a group of parents, grandparents and interested adults finding community and supporting the faithful growth of our families. We are reading the book Liturgy of the Ordinary
by Tish Harrison Warren. Feel free to come even if you don’t have or haven’t read the book! We will discuss challenges and successes in parenting in faith.
Sarah Smith, parishioner and mother of seven, remarks:
“This informal gathering is where I’ve found space to know and be known in the sharing of life in faith. Since it’s inception, the Faithful Generations ‘class’, has morphed in form, lending itself to conversations around our lived lives and towards being people of hope, followers of Christ, in relationship and as a community. Conversation throughout the next few weeks will revolve around Tish Harrison Warren’s book, Liturgy of the Ordinary. In this book she examines and challenges the formative practices we embrace in the small ordinary moments of our lives. For, ‘How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.’ Annie Dillard“
